The evaluation of a compact electrical-mechanical device for controlling the oxygen-nitrogen concentration of the atmosphere within an aerospace vehicle cabin simulator during a 2-man, 3-day test is described. Also described is a device used during the evaluation to program various rates of leakage of the atmosphere from the simulator so the response of the controller could be checked periodically. Data obtained reveal a capability for automatically controlling the oxygen-filler gas concentration in an aerospace vehicle cabin simulator over varying ranges of total cabin pressures.
